Brought to you by the Washington State Fire Fighters’ Association

We are excited to once again share our tradition of outstanding training and fellowship  in 2023. We have listened to past attendees and made every effort to create an interesting and challenging program.

The Annual WSFFA Fire School is brought to you by the commitment and volunteer efforts of the Washington State Fire Fighters’ Association. Since the first Fire School in 1923, the goal has been to improve the safety of Washington’s firefighters by offering superior training. Well trained and knowledgeable firefighters can better protect the citizens of their respective communities from the many hazards of daily life.

Each year, the WSFFA Fire School continues to improve and expand upon the courses offered to provide new and relevant training. From Basic Skills Training, Firefighter RIT Operations, to Fires in Hybrid Vehicles & New Car Tech, the WSFFA Fire School provides education in the skills and knowledge a modern firefighter needs to be effective while remaining safe.


NOTE:  Conference starts at 1000 on Thursday, May 18th, 2023 with a general session on Solar Panel Safety and Awareness. Following that, we have scheduled TED Talks throughout the day starting at 1300 featuring Fire Service related topics.  Your registration includes these seminars at no additional cost to you:  Post-Traumatic Stress, Cancer Prevention, Tactics, Leadership, Recruitment and Retention, and New Car Technology.

Student Check-In

Students will be able to pick up their registration packets on the Conference Center lower floor outside the WSFFA Office.


The WSFFA Office on the lower level will be staffed at all times during classroom hours. Any student, instructor, or vendor with a question or need can go to the office for assistance.
